Win Expectancy Graph
Well, apparently the Brewers don't dominate the Pirates anymore.
This one was over early, as the Pirates scored one in the second and five more in the third off of Carlos Villanueva to take a 6-1 lead that the Bucs never relinquished.
Carlos Villanueva rebounded from the third inning and made it through four, but still left four innings of work for a Brewer bullpen that was already overworked. Villanueva allowed six runs on eleven hits and a walk in four innings, picking up his tenth loss. He threw just 73 pitches in the effort.
The Brewer bats had some moments tonight, including Fielder's 31st home run. Felipe Lopez scored the first run of the game after tripling in the first, and went 1-for-2 with that triple and two walks. Five Brewers were on base multiple times in the game, but that wasn't enough to overcome a Pirate attack that included 16 hits.
